Re: JAWS pulled up controls from background page

Hi Birkar and All,

Setting aria-modal to true was causing VoiceOver not read the content
inside the modal on iPhones.
I have filed an WebKit bug which was not fixed when I checked couple
of months ago.
Is this works fine now?

Thanks & Regards,
Mohith BP
